    I saw the gross photos and X-ray at the above link, but still have to wonder: Just how could someone lose a ring INSIDE their finger? Did skin grow around it and encase it?

    That's the hand of a 44 year-old? That settles it, I'm only dealing with young trophy wives. It'll be like Children of the Corn, only different. [​IMG]

    Very strange, but I have to wonder how something like that could happen. The nearest I can figure is that she developed a staph infection (probably from something getting in under the ring and never cleaned out), which caused massive swelling. I'd love to hear a medical explanation though (what's on the site is pretty terse).

    I think it's interesting from a medical perspective. I'd like more detail on the how/why of it all, though.

    The article mentions mxyedema or myxoedema for those addicted to the British spelling. This is associated with profound hypothyroidism (this case), and can cause non-pitting edematous swelling. Possibly the woman's fingers swelled, and she was not mentally capable of caring for herself, the infection set it, and a granuloma formed.

    Similar, but not exactly the same: dogs who have a collar placed on them as pups and not properly attended; the collar grows into the neck as the dog grows. Usually presented for foul odor and/or swollen head, usually at 5:30 PM on Friday, usually with the statement "I ain't got no money."

    Thanks for the pics... I'll be using them as my excuse not to wear my wedding ring. [​IMG]

    There's a bunch of girlie-men in this thread. [​IMG]

    It's only a lumpy, swollen finger. There's no blood or anything.
